i recently upgraded my Windows 8 laptop to Windows 8.1 RTM. The upgrade went smooth (selected Keep everything for the upgrade), but i just now noticed that the SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard installation that i had running on this machine is pretty much disintegrated
after the upgrade. The service is gone, there are no mappings between Security ID's and account names and trying a repair on the installation gives me several error messages and at the end just crashes the installer several times. Is this something that anyone
else has noticed? If this is a compatibility issue (which it says when starting the installer) why wasn't i informed of this when running the upgrade, and most important, how (if at all) can i fix this?
Were you able to get this fixed? I just upgraded to 8.1 and the same thing happened to me. My SQL server is now toast post upgrade which pretty much has halted my development until I fix my SQL server.
I Basically did a complete reinstall of SQL Server and reattached the .mdb files to the new instance. Unfortunately no other way i tried seemed to work. Repairing the instances that are installed wasn't possible.
